Hi Marg

I would be interested in contributing to your panel. I'm planning to  
attend AOIR8, and am looking for a 'hook' to write an abstract on.

I am doing a PhD at the University of Sydney (Australia) on the  
process of doing a PhD. Some of my data is being provided by a group  
of candidates who are blogging their progress in a closed blogging  
community. I'm hoping to 'open a window' into the process of  
development that takes place during the PhD process, and to be able  
to theorise something about the pedagogy of doing/becoming a PhD.  
Note that here the entire PhD is usually done by thesis - none of my  
participants have had to do any coursework as part of the this  
degree, so it's a little different from the US experience of  
coursework + dissertation - although this is changing slowly.

I would like to be able to present some preliminary analysis of my  
data within the framework of the place of reflexive writing in  
research. It could come under the heading of 'The use of the internet  
to deliver authentic learning experiences'.

Does this sound like the kind of thing that would be of interest to you?
